I am happy to announce a new feature on the Injury Lawyer website. The Personal Injury Legal Assistance Headquarters contains important and useful information for personal injury victims. Please check it out and let me know what you think.

One of the sections at the Headquarters provides you with details you need to know if you are injured as a result of the negligence of a local or state government in Maryland. THERE ARE TIME LIMITS IN WHICH TO PUT THE LOCAL OR STATE GOVERNMENT ON NOTICE AND IF YOU FAIL TO DO SO THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE YOUR CLAIM WILL BE DISMISSED!!!

Do not confuse this with the Maryland Statute of Limitations. The Statute of Limitations is the total period of time you have to file a lawsuit against a negligent party. The Maryland Local Government Tort Claims Act and the Maryland Tort Claims Act is the law that requires an injured party to notify the local or state government that you are making a claim and may be filing suit in the future.

So if you’re in an auto accident and the at fault driver was operating a Local or State Government vehicle, or if you slip and fall and injure yourself on Local or State Government property BE AWARE YOU MUST NOTIFY THE LOCAL OR STATE GOVERNMENT WITHIN THE SPECIFIED TIME LIMITS!!! Go to the Personal Injury Legal Assistance Headquarters for more information.
